Leaf clean up for the city of Clinton may be going a little slower than earlier anticipated.

A tool that was going to help the street department keep up with the fall clean up schedule this year has not arrived, forcing the city to continue in its usual course of action for fall leaf clean up. Steve Lobb, Public Works Director for the City of Clinton explains the City purchased a very nice leaf vac system in August, however, it has not arrived.

With the City defaulting on their deal with Giant Vac, the company they purchased the original vac system from, they will now turn to another company they received a bid from in August, Old Dominion. Lobb points out, there is a 90-day waiting period for the system from them, so they will not receive it before the fall clean up season is over.

Since the streets department has been working with the two current machines they have, Lobb says not much changes for them this fall season. He says the biggest disappointed is in their disappointment they cannot provide a better service to the residents of the Clinton community.

Old Dominions bid from the summer did not change. Lobb says had it changed they may have had to restart the bidding process over, and make getting a system in place longer. Lobb is hopeful to have a system for spring clean up, but for sure next falls leaf clean up season.
